I would like to know how did the diets of people changed due to the new kingdoms that came in and took over the Indian Subcontinent. Was it earlier more vegetarian due to religious reasons and shifted to non vegetarian due to the new culture and as claimed by the Right Wing Politicians in India who say that the Mughals forcefully imposed their cultures or was the diet pretty much the same.

I've read about the eating habits on websites such as here but there is no authenticity.

    Lots of supposition, not a lot of evidence. The final sentence seems to veer away from historical inquiry into policy formulation and judgement. – Mark C. Wallace Aug 12 '19 at 12:53
  • I was speaking from a personal perspective and what i've observed and read historically. This in no means is a full article and as you rightly mention there are many vegetarians who are quite physically better. – user38443 Aug 12 '19 at 13:20

    @StackUpPhysics, please don't reply in comments. Update the question. OP should almost never occur in comments. I think the question would be stronger if you removed the second paragraph. (don't comment, just either do the edit or flag the comment for deletion). – Mark C. Wallace Aug 12 '19 at 13:28

    Did the Mughals believe a meat heavy diet was necessary? (I.e. please add any prior research to the question.) – Gort the Robot Aug 12 '19 at 18:30
